Beyond the Numbers: Echoes of the Opioid Epidemic

This series of short videos tells the stories of 10 people touched by the opioid epidemic and how their lives have been filled with love, loss, and hope. Each story was created by someone in recovery or who knew and loved someone affected by opioid use disorder. They tell their stories using family photos and first-person narration to help viewers understand the personal impact of the crisis.

The videos are the result of a project led by the Consortium’s Affected Families & Friends Work Group and are a resource for community partners, agencies, and coalitions can use during future events or presentation. The Consortium has developed a Facilitator’s Guide that gives context to the stories and can be used to help plan events.

If you would like to learn more about the project or use the videos for an event, contact Jen Place.
